WHO ARE YOU?
Take a deep breath before you answer that question because who you are is more than the name you are called, your address or the way you are addressed, why? Those things you do perfectly in the secret add up to the answer of the question WHO ARE YOU?
You know yourself better than anyone else on earth. You can lie your way through, but there is one person you cannot lie to, that person is yourself. If you are lying you will know, that’s why people uses lies to cover lies. Some people fornicate so perfectly that nobody can catch them. Some people sinful attitudes are like profession or career why? They did so perfectly as if they went to school to read sin. Others may not catch you but you caught yourself. There are people responsible for the death of another and they will be the first to sympathize, what a world. Nothing done under heaven hidden and you are the first police of yourself.
Are you truly what they called you, please think deep! Are you not much more than what they called you? They called you good man but you know you are not. They reverend you but you know you don’t worth it. If you die that way, your heaven is not sure. May be you are a Pastor but you know your deeds in secret doesn’t worth the Altar. Why don’t you re-think today? Read Psalms 15:1 Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? *He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. *He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour. *In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not. *He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved. Let’s continue this way:
WHO ARE YOU?
- In Your Heart: He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. Some people’s hearts are lie manufacturing plant; they produce lies from their heart. Devil is not the one that corrupts your heart; you do through fear, anxiety, covetousness, jealousy, envy etc. If you always want to be better than others you will lie. If you want to get something by all means, you will lie. Men lie when they cannot control their taste. The story of a young man working in a bank enters into the bank strong room and packed enough money not knowing there was a central camera watching, they confronted him, he said he knew nothing about it until they show him the video of his action. What many people don’t know is that truth lives on but lies (falsehood) kills. Shortcut to success will lead to eternal regret. The end result of lie is vanity. You should be able to answer this question who are you in your heart. WHO ARE YOU?
- To Your Neighbour: He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour. Who are you to your neighbours? Neighbour here represent those competing with you, neighbour here also represent those higher than you or under you; how do you react to them? Are you happy when your neighbour is promoted? Are you happy to see people around you doing well? Don’t you think of overrunning them and possessing their possessions? Haven’t you thought of attacking your neighbor with evil or eradicate them because they are highly placed than you? “Hey! Be careful”. Whenever your imagination is against your fellow human, place a check on it. You fight people and speak against them because you don’t want them to rise. Until you raise somebody greater than you, you are an eternal failure. In political campaign are you not looking for the downfall of your opponent? What about if you die a day to your swearing in into governmental office? Don’t you think! Please think! There are people powerful than you that die like fowl. There are people more influential than you that lost their lives in plane crash; their body melted. Please think, who are you to your neighbour? WHO ARE YOU?
- To Criminals: In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not. Don’t you have criminals as friend? Don’t you have people that being punished by your criminal friends? Romans 1:32 says Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. If you have criminals as friend or as confidant you are a criminal as well. On the other side of the coin; who are you to good people around you. Who are you to Godly people; are you sure you are not persecuting them? If you don’t want your bones and carcasses to fall in lion’s den, you better stop persecuting them. Read this scripture: Psalms 34:7 The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
God can eradicate an entire generation because of one good person; He is a jealous God, (Psalm 125:3.) All right! One more, can you swear to your hurt? The Three Hebrew boys swore. Daniel 3:16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. *If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. *But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. Abraham Swore; Genesis 14:21 And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons, and take the goods to thyself. * And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lift up mine hand unto the LORD, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and earth, *That I will not take from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take any thing that is thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich: If you are not sure of your right standing with God you can’t swear to your hurt. A man of God swore an oath, he said “If I fall into fornication let leprosy cover me up”. Don’t join people to destroy people. WHO ARE YOU?
- In Your Finance: Psalms 15:5 He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved. What are you adding to your business to get more money? What’s are the testimonies you shared about money; can you tell people everything about how you get the Money? Your total monthly income is 1,000,000.00 but your savings within a month is over ten million, if you are blessed by favour is acceptable before God, but if you cut corners to be rich; you will soon be cut off in the midst of your days. Jeremiah 17:10 I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. *As the partridge sitteth on eggs, and hatcheth them not; so he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool. This month your name will ring for favour. People will remember you, your blessing will come faster than you imagine. You will not lack; you will not beg. God will not withdraw His hand from your lives. Who are you in your finance? Are you not sponsoring evil? Are you not taking or giving bribe? Are you sure you are doing good to people without collecting more than what you gave them. Don’t you put girls in family way before the job is granted, think the next one you will do may be the last you will ever do. There are things you do that nobody catches you but you caught yourself, therefore correct yourself before it’s too late.
CHANGING WHO YOU ARE
Genesis 18:17-18 You must allow God to know you for good things because all your wrongs are recorded before Him. One of the reasons why God is invisible is that, His present in everything around us; in the air, in the darkness, in the light, God exist in everything around us, you may wonder but that’s truth. He fills all in all. Ephesians 1:23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
You can change who you are by surrendering all unto God. By accepting Jesus afresh. Release every occult book, burn your evil medicine, turn away from criminals, and purify your heart by the blood of Jesus. Speak the truth always. Instead of insulting people pray for them. Force yourself to love people doing well. Read Psalm 15 again to possess the attributes of who you are in God. You will not miss it anymore.
